CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Paper 2 Q.6

Answer 7.
When no more solute can be dissolved in a solvent at a given temperature, the solution is said to be a saturated solution. The same solution on heating/increasing its temperature can become unsaturated as the particles in the solution on heating gains energy and move apart from each other, thereby allowing some more solute particles to dissolve in it.

CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Paper 2 Q.11

Answer 12.

  1. A thin and strong string has less surface area, due to which it exerts greater pressure on the shoulder of the person holding the bag using it. Thus, it becomes difficult to hold it.
  2. The pressure of water at the bottom is maximum. To withstand this pressure the walls at the bottom are made wider. On the contrary, pressure of water at top is comparatively minimum and thus, its wall are made narrower.


  • All liquids and gases are referred as fluids.
  • Greater the density of the fluid, more is the upthrust.
  • Lesser the density of the fluid, lesser is the upthrust.

Answer 15.

  • Sugar disappears in water.
  • The volume of water does not increase.

This is because there is lot of space between the water molecules and the added sugar molecules will occupy the space between the water molecules.

Answer 16.
Causes: AIDS is caused by retro-virus HIV (Human Immuno Deficiency Virus).
Mode of transmission: AIDS is transmitted from an infected person to a healthy person through sexual contact, blood transfusion, use of contaminated needle, from infected mother to the foetus.
Symptoms: The major symptoms of AIDS are –

  • Swollen lymph nodes.
  • Decreased Count of blood platelets causing haemorrhage, fever, patient becomes susceptible to other infections too due to breakdown of the immune system.
  • Sweating at night and weight loss.
  • Severe damage to brain which may lead to loss of memory, ability to speak and think.

Prevention: AIDS can be prevented by adopting the following precautions –

  • Sexual contact with unknown person should be avoided.
  • Transfusion of infected blood should be avoided. The blood donor should be tested for HIV negative.
  • Disposable syringes and needles should be used.
  • Common razor at the barber shop should be avoided.

Cure: No effective treatment for AIDS is available.

CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Paper 2 Q.19

Answer 20.

  1. Buoyant force = Weight of liquid displaced
    = (Volume of the liquid displaced) × (Density of liquid) × (Acceleration due to gravity)
    So, density of liquid and volume of the liquid displaced affects the buoyant force.
  2. Buoyant force exerted by liquid does not depend upon its volume.
    So, the buoyant force will not increase on increasing the volume of the liquid.
  3. Hydrometer and lactometer are based on Archimedes’ principle. Submarines are also designed according to Archimedes’ principle.

Answer 21.
Vertebrata is divided into two superclasses, viz. Pisces and Tetrapoda. Animals of Pisces class have streamlined body with fins and tails to assist in swimming. Animals of Tetrapoda class have four limbs for locomotion.
Tetrapoda is further classified into following classes:

  • Amphibia: Are adapted to live in water and on land. Can breathe oxygen through skin when under water.
  • Reptilia: These are crawling animals. Skin is hard to withstand extreme temperatures.
  • Aves: Forelimbs are modified into wings to assist in flying. Beaks are present. Body is covered with feathers.
  • Mammalia: Mammary glands present to nurture young ones. Skin is covered with hair. Most of the animals are viviparous.

CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Paper 2 Q.21


Answer 22.
The reaction produced gaseous product, CO2 which escaped into the atmosphere.

Answer 23.
Neuron has three parts:

  • Cell body or cyton
  • Dendrite
  • Axon

Answer 24.

  1. Plant root cells absorb water by osmosis.
  2. The unicellular organisms like amoeba takes in the required materials by osmosis.

Answer 25.
Mass of solute = 40 g
Mass of solvent = 280 g
Mass of solution = Mass of solute + Mass of solvent.
= 40 g + 280 g
= 320 g
Mass percentage of solution = \(\frac { Massofsolute }{ Massofsolution }\) × 100
= \(\frac { 40 }{ 320 }\) × 100 = 12.5%

Answer 26.
The spring balance should be held only at the hook on the top end, never hold the spring balance from its sides.
CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Paper 2 Q.26

Answer 27.
Boron + Oxygen → Compound of Boron and Oxygen
0.096 g + 0.144 g → 0.240 g
This can be accounted on the basis of law of conservation of mass.
